Nufflets.com – Asia’s Contextual Online Advertising Network

nufflets logoAnother online advertising network has been launched in Malaysia — Nufflets, a contextual advertising network targeted to Asia market that offers Cost-Per-Click text based advertising.

“Nufflets” is like a kind of combination of the others two advertising company in Malaysia, Nuffnang and Advertlets. Based on Cost-Per-Click(CPC) basis, you only get paid if ypu ads get a click. As what they state, Nufflets applies a 50% revenue share and your share will be increased based on your website performance.

You also can use AdSense and Nufflets on the same web page, as long as the Nufflets ad format is significantly different from AdSense ads. They use USD currency to received and make payments. They were only a minimum $ 50 to reach to make you eligible to get a cheque.

Also they state that they want to be “Asia’s Online Advertising Network”, only 6 Asia’s country currently be accepted which they were Malaysia, SIngapore,Japan, Australia, Thailand and China. The requirement to be their publisher was you blog must be able to generate 3000 pageviews per month and not using free blog domain like blogspot.com, wordpress.com or etc. 

Okay, the honest part from me, I wonder why they choose Nufflets that combining Nuffnang and Advertlets rather that be creative to pick another name. Could be more creative to differentiate their brand though.

Excluding the websites without own domain name also it’s a high paying risk to overcome since mostly in Asia’s, they were to many popular and most traffic blog’s are from free blog services and currently, Asia’s community in free blog services are to good to be excluded. But, the 3000 pageviews per month is acceptable as 100 pageview per day would not be a critical factor to reach by the publisher.

It’s important to achieve enough advertisers for Nufflets to be one of the succesful or thet, they will running out of cash and go into the deadpool. My suggest firstly, to the Nufflets team or who ever that already intend to do like them, it’s a high paying risk.

IMHO, Nufflets should capture basic thung first. The idea was, to grab a high profile publishers in their network first. Or in a simple phrase, is to make a good network under them like Weblogs Inc, Happy People Media, that could encourage advertisers to serve their ads with them, rather than buying a script and get it done.It’s a hard way to do so.

But, it’s not impossible to make through this if their already pasionnate to what they want to do. It’s important to team up with already famous bloggers or publishers and also had a hefty budget for their advertisement. From what they had done now, I would not say anything and I’m targeting 6 months from now to make a prediction about them rather towards their success of failures.

Advertlets Into The DeadPool?

What happen to Advertlets? They was one of the leading advertising company in Malaysia and also Singapore, but then had their own domain name expired? How this could be?The was something wrong with going around.

Every Advertlets publisher facing a problem that when user come to their site, they will be redirect to other pages.This problem take on this day and the solution is to remove the code from your blog.

By the way, I had contacted Josh Lim about that but the answer are not convincing me at all.He said that they was a slight problem with Advertlets right now. Be my guess, I taught they was running out of money at all, and could be the possibilities the problem came from the insider.

But what happened today for Advertlets seriously could kill their brand even if they come back.So, Advertlets will be in the deadpool, at least now.But even Josh Lim Advertlets wreck up right now, he also will feature at the Star Education Fair 2008 on Jan 12, when he speaks on animation graphics during the education and career talk on “Exploring Options in the ICT World”. While bloggers struggles to get their blog up again, this super duper cool CEO nicely featured in The Star – Then forget to renew the domain

Anyway,here is the link for the news.

*update: Josh Lim had bring a news that you can see below:

We’ll be back shortly! As mentioned there was a complication with the domain, and we are working to resolve it. Its working partially now in some areas.

So,as you might be thinking right now, they were not at the deadpool yet, but could this issue be forget by their publishers? So Josh Lim, they will be a hard time for you guys at the Advertlets, but I’m sure you could make it through.

NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 Specs And Pics Revealed

geforce-9800-gx2

This is NVIDIA’s top-of-the-line to-be.The best way to think of the GeForce 9800 GX2 is a 8800 that’s been shrunk down to 65nm and SLI’d onto a “single” card. The card is supposed to be at least 30% faster than a 8800 Ultra, and will apparently support Quad SLI. So, now for the really awesome part:

  • 1GB frame buffer
  • Two PCBs
  • Two 65nm GPUs
  • 256 Stream Processors

This is Top-Line Product Everyone.This is a GameShit Madness!!

A Reality Of Blogging You Must Know

cat blogging

Blogging is fun, easy and a great way to meet others and become a part of a wonderful, growing community.But, before you begin though, there are a few things you should know.

1) It Takes A Lot Of Hardwork Than You Think

– Unless you just create up a personal blog, it just takes a bit. But if you intend to make money with it, you just came into a False Hope Zone. More than 90% of the bloggers create a blog to make money. But then you must realize that it not as easy as you might think and it even horror dream for new blogger.

Some of them had fail to establish themselves and mostly been wipe out in the blog arena after 1 years because they had fail to achieve their dream. But don’t take it as a serious advise as you can blog to make money(if you intend so) if you had a proper plan what you are going to blog.

You’ll have to get out there and do a bit of shameless self promotion. It’s not enough to post and wait. Your content has to be optimized for search and you’ll want to drive others to your site. You’ll have to visit other blogs and forums and pimp the heck out of your blog without being spammy and annoying.

2) Traffic Will Kill You Fast Enough

-Traffic didn’t come easily unless you had a hefty budget to advertise at others established bloggers like Shoemoney,Problogger, John Chow & Cow, or even at Techcrunch if you dare to put $10,000 away. Sure from this, you will get famous soon enough but what is the reward you get?

Unless you are promoting a product or services, advertising like that might help you a lot but if you just creating a blog, this is a hell you must avoid. Advertising is the proper but expensive way to get famous and if you dare, you might be walking like a champ and if you fail, you just running like a chimp anyway.

If you’re brand new to blogging and think you’ll have hundreds of visitors in the first week, even in the first few months, you couldn’t be more wrong. It takes time, patience and trust to build up an audience. It’s not enough to sit back and hope they show up.

3) Revenue Will Takes Time

-If you think you can make a gazillion dollars right after you make the first post, you already in the mouth of shit hole. It’s a day dreamers way to think like that. Some of popular bloggers like John Chow takes 1 year to made it profitable. And for me, it took about 4 months just to get my first $1.

If you don’t have enough traffic, you will not have the money.Period. Build your readership, get traffic first, then you can monetize your blog. As my experience state that 1000 unique visitors per-day must be your first goal to achieve if you want to monetize your blog.

Conclusion

If you’re serious about blogging, you can do very well, but don’t jump into it blind. Do your research. Learn how to optimize your content and drive traffic to your blog. Research the different ways in which you can montetize your blog and work on building up a community. The people who take the time to do it right are the ones who do well.

Problogger new post that not been publish yet. Hat tip to CybernetNews, you can find the solution from this post.

It is such a big deal? Yes if you are really take up your every post is a quality one or if you like a Problogger, would you let anyone see your draft post or even rip off your article?

I don’t think my readers will be so dumb ass to let this happen for their precious blogs. They are so many splogs out there waiting to rip off your content and make them look like they write original content while we copier them. That’s totally f*#@ and this will never happen to mine. I will.

New Year Resolution-2008 Ultimate List

Sincerely, I never make a resolution like this before in my life and this will be new and *tough* to me. And perhaps Allah S.W.T will praise me and guide me to achieve what I want this year.

1)  Getting Married

– This could never be prolong anymore. I already can’t wait to get married with my fiance right now. We was trying 4 years in a row to get this and now, I hope this year our dream will come true. Before this, money be the problem and until now, it also because of money.But now, it only a minor and I will keep pushing myself to the limit to get this goal to be achieved.

2) Blog, Site

– After I sold my blog in November last year, I regret that it was the heart-breaking moment in my life. I knew it could be better and for this time, I just not looking back either. The first thing in my schedule was to buy domains for this blog, for my media company that will take care everything,my media blog and site networks, my ads system for taking care all the ads media sales, and for my new affiliate site.

This will be a huge efforts and will include a vast amount of money and for that, I do loan with CIMB for RM 5000 or $ 1500++ for the equivalent amount in USD. There was only 3 persons now working in my online company and I do want more.But with the tiny little budget, we can’t do nothing until we get achieved our company target for this year.

3) Gain More Knowledge

– This year, I will get my LCCI Diploma In Accounting because this will get me a higher emolument for my salary in the government sector. Take an exam as private candidate and shoot up to take the Level 3 papers. I had buy the books and it seems not to differ form my syllabus before.

4) Working on my ideas

– Ideas only can’t make you go anywhere.Execution of the ideas is the important part. You never really knows until you try.Fail or succes is a parody. One of them will be a social site that currently take the most of my sleep time now. A very new social stigma that had a better feature for all users and never compromise with the user security information. Traffic will not be the only sole way, the quality one will assured. And it will not be a dumb social site like Zed said in his so fucking awesome blog post.

5) Managing my expenses well

– This could be important part as I was a pathetic person when managing my money although my major was accounting. Last month was my tragedic moment. I never knew that last month total expenses was RM 2100 and it was so strive when you aware that you just had a new mobile phone, 2 pairs of clothes and pants, 1 boxer, and a new 4 GB Apacer Pendrive and the total for all of this was RM 1300. So, where’s my others money being flush? I will take care for this now.

6) Buy myself a car, I mean my car.

-Now I’m using my brother car.And I target a MyVi for me. Don’t ever try to change my will for this.

7) Be A Good Person

-I’m 25 years old and now, whatever I do, I will make sure I’m think twice before do it. Only I know how bad I am.

8) Surely, To Gain More Readers

– Come on lads, my blog was the best to read,to comment, and to hack.So please feel free to be my loyal readers. I set a goal for 5000 unique visitors per month this year.
